Because We Are No Longer Slaves

we eat cake fit for the gods. 

The crowning jewel of our Passover meal is always the cake, made by my mom from a recipe from her grandmother. It is the most amazing cake: hazelnut torte with mocha icing and raspberry sauce. The cake is made with ground blanched hazelnuts and matzo meal, so it has a course crumb, but it's light and flavorful. The frosting is heaven. I'm actually going to post the recipe for it in a few days, so get ready! It is all kinds of evil, but totally worth it. 

This year, our seder was on Danny's birthday, so we turned our torte into a festive birthday cake.

I think I'm going to stop writing now and eat some leftover mocha frosting from the fridge with a spoon. Sound good?
